Here's how much LeBron James is already affecting Lakers' ticket demand

Rams players react to Le Bron James signing with the Lakers

Another factor pundits considered behind James' move west was the opportunity to link up with a young roster, including 2017's number-two draft pick Lonzo Ball and Germany's Isaac Bonga, which could ensure he wouldn't have to carry the team like he did in Cleveland.

The Lakers have reportedly been in talks with San Antonio for unhappy star Kawhi Leonard. A new iteration was installed in 2014, upon James' return to Cleveland and since served as a mainstay of the downtown area.

"But even if we were, you know the Lakers...once you retire, you become all about the organization, and the next player that is in that jersey...the players who come before have a responsibility to help them win more championships".

Having shaken up the National Basketball Association by successfully recruiting LeBron James on the first day of free agency, the Lakers followed it up by adding Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and, most recently, Rajon Rondo.

The Lakers won't challenge for a championship in the short term that way.

Well, with the NBA's moratorium period not ending until 12:01 p.m. on July 6, Embiid and the Sixers still have some time to change James' mind.

Striker Kane has been in prolific scoring form, netting 135 goals in all competitions for Tottenham over the last four seasons. The organization has surprised everyone, I think it's given an incredible image of the Russian people, of Russia in general.

James and the Cavaliers have been beaten in three out of four NBA Finals against the Warriors since 2015.

Following James' decision to leave Cleveland for a second time, a Cavaliers fan accidentally set himself aflame as he attempted to burn a LeBron jersey. "The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders", Lakers icon Kareem Abdul-Jabbar added.

After years of struggling, the Lakers now have the best player in the world to lead their impressive young core.

With the Lakers signing LeBron James, there are certainly a lot of things to take in for what his impact on the franchise will be.

Actually, let's start there since it relates to much of the confusion generated Monday by the news that the Lakers had agreed to a one-year, $9 million deal with Rondo.
